Unfair Park absotively does not condone the spray-painting of police vehicles; let's make that perfectly clear. But we posolutely condone our Friends sending us photos of spray-painted police vehicles. This one comes from near Greenville Avenue and LBJ Freeway. After the jump, an explanation from the finetastic Friend who sent us the pictures. Also, you'll find some more pictures. --Robert Wilonsky

This police RV was parked for a week at the corner of Amberton Pkwy and Greenville Ave. Then on Monday, my s/o and I were driving by on the way to take her to work and we noticed it had been tagged. Usually the police bring this out to crime "hot spots" and it's manned. Sometimes they will store it someplace, but they are supposed to take it back every night. This time it sat -- untended -- for a whole week. I called it into 311 on Monday and the operator dispatched me through to DPD's Northeast substation who acted like they had no idea where it was. They finally came and it got it yesterday afternoon.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
